How To Help

Volunteer at The NOAH Center

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in joining our volunteer team at The NOAH Center. We are so appreciative that you are considering spending your valuable time helping us save homeless cats and dogs. 

The NOAH Center is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization and operates primarily through the support of our volunteer program. Volunteers play a key role in the work we do and it is only with your help that we are able to rescue, adopt, foster, spay/neuter, and provide exceptional care to all the animals that come through our doors! Our volunteers contribute an equivalent of 30 full-time staff members every year!

Volunteer Opportunities

Cat Kennel Tech: 
Help us keep our kitty living quarters spick and span, and spend time loving on our whiskered friends.

Dog Walker: 
Come get those steps in and some fresh air while walking dogs out on our on-site half-mile walking trail, or play with dogs in our off-leash area. 

Dog Kennel Tech:
Tidy up dog suites and provide new enriching toys, plenty of love, affection, and social time for dogs in our care. 

Laundry: 
200+ animals create a LOT of laundry! Help us stay on top of our daily loads by washing pet bedding and towels out in our garage.

Fundraising & Events: 
Join our fundraising team and bring in the funds that our organization runs on. Help in the office (computer literacy and experience with Microsoft Office required for this role) or lend a hand at events. 

Marketing: 
Do you have a creative eye and a knack for creative or content writing, photography, or graphic design? We can always use help in promoting our mission.

Foster Care: 
Have a spare bathroom or another easily cleanable space? Extend the walls of our facility by opening up your home to a litter of puppies or kittens!

Facilities Maintenance: 
Mowing, weed eating, pressure washing, painting, and more! Help us keep our grounds looking great. 

Clinic Assistant: 
No veterinary experience is required for volunteering in our clinic, but is great for those with a medical interest; wash surgical instruments, build surgical packs, and more. 

Have a specific skill-set that may be helpful? Reach out! We'd love to hear from you.

Q. What type of time commitment do you require?
A. We value any time that you are willing to contribute. Our daily operations depend heavily on our volunteers covering certain shifts. These shifts vary 2-6 hours per day depending on the volunteer job position. We hope that all of our volunteers can cover at least one shift a week and can commit to at least four months. However, we have many opportunities that will work with a variety of schedules.

If you are unable to pay the membership fee special accommodations can be made with the Volunteer Coordinator on a case by case basis.
